St-Jacques street in Garthby

Garthby, St-Jacques Street, looking west from the intersection with St-François Street, about 1918. Remarkable photograph as for the details that we find there: the car, the wooden sidewalks, the architecture of the buildings, the clothes of the passers-by. Taking in account the clothes people are wearing, picture was probably taken on a Sunday, after mass.
The car is a Ford T 1916 or 1917 (identified by the shape of the rear window, the shape of the radiator at the front and the shape and type of the headlights).
